After the Belfast Project Fiasco, Time For Another Look At Time Capsule Crypto?
"Promise me, Red. If you ever get out... find that spot. At the base of that wall, you'll find a rock that has no earthly business in a Maine hayfield. Piece of black, volcanic glass. There's something buried under it I want you to have."
Security by burying things under rocks seems as good a technique as any, in geological time.
New Information May Narrow Down Malaysian Jet's Path
The intermediate pings have always been considered along with the final pings to determine the arcs.
The information at the end of the article - that a southern flight would be found on Indonesian primary radar returns - seems to contradict the large search effort being carried out currently on the southern corridor.
It's also entirely possible that the flight wasn't picked up on Indonesian radar - even though it did fly south - if the Indonesian radar capability was not operating as it was expected to.
Why We Think There's a Multiverse, Not Just Our Universe
If Science and Religion turn out to be talking about the same thing in different ways c.f. "In my Father's House, there are many mansions..."
How One Man Fought His ISP's Bad Behavior and Won
I commented on the reddit thread in the same vein as you and got downvoted. So I did some research.
Several contributors to that thread suggest that Google DNS has solved the CDN problem by adding and original IP field that the CDN can use to geolocate the subscriber. This is due to Google implementing edns-client-subnet EDNS0 extensions as of late-2011.
Jade Rabbit Spotted By American Eagle (LRO)
I just can't help reading the name "Jade Rabbit" and wondering why the Chinese thought it would be a good name for a probe
How Ya Gonna Get 'Em Down On the UNIX Farm?
Does the professor teach his students by giving verbal and written instruction or does he do it in the form of interpretive dance?
The challenge of Computer Science is managing, modelling and directing complexity. GUIs do that in one way; command line interfaces do that in another. You teach students how to deal with complexity and their ability to do that - the maximal level of complexity that they can manage - determines their potential as a Computer Scientist (programming being a subset thereof)
UK Authorities Threaten To Storm Ecuadorian Embassy To Arrest Julian Assange
The UK stormed the Libyan embassy way back in the 1980s to capture a gunman who had shot a British police officer.
This is a totally different situation and will be very interesting to see who the diplomatic world reacts.
Quest To Measure the Venus Transit "Aureole Effect"
Who is this chick Venus and why is she driving a Transit?
Murdoch Faces Allegations of Sabotage
...the close resemblance between Rupert Murdoch and Emperor Palpatine...?
Your point would be wonderfully made, if not for the fact that Earth is at the bottom of the gravity well and the Moon is near the top. If there was crude oil on the moon (or any other useful energy-bearing ore), all that would be needed would be to get it to free-return trajectory, which is a whole lot less than raising it to LEO from Earth.
Megaupload Drops Lawsuit Against Universal Music
Employees are not yet in US custody. They are currently being held by New Zealand authorities (in court as I type this) pending extradition hearings. The extradition is not automatic and is being contested.
Verizon Tech Charged In $4.5M Equipment Scam
"I would have gotten away with it if it hadn't been for that darn Cisco Kid"
LightSquared Disrupts 75% of GPS Connections In Government Test
That's acute pun.
P2P Traffic Drops 10% After New NZ Law
I have not noticed any difference in total international traffic at the ISP which I run between now and before the new law came into force. I do notice more VPN and seedbox traffic on residential connections and less UDP torrent traffic.
I am also yet to see a copyright infringement notice properly formatted with the requirements of the new legislation. I have bot even received an automated form letter from a rights owner, as used to be the case on a regular basis.
No rightsowner, or agent thereof has been in contact, nor RIANZ or NZFACT to discuss the relationship between the rightsowners and the designated IPAPs.
NZ Illegal Downloading Crackdown Law In Effect
As a so-called IPAP, I have so far received a Grand Total of Zero infringement notices for my netblocks.
Ask Slashdot: Overcoming Convention Hall Wi-Fi Interference?
So you mean that you demo'ed wireless gear by turning it into wired gear?
eBay Deploys 100TB of SSDs, Cuts Rackspace By Half
So the entire eBay VM operation could fit into 6 racks?
200 physical servers @ 1RU each = 5 racks
10x 10TB 2U SSDs = half a rack
5x 2U switches = quarter rack
Massive Botnet "Indestructible," Say Researchers
All that law enforcement needs to do is to purchase payload delivery on the botnet and include commands to delete Windows from each offending PC.
Alternatively, they just need to place copyrighted material on each host and send in the MPAA and RIAA with infringement notices.
That should get the job done.
CERN Ups Antimatter Confinement Record to 15+ Minutes

Ask Slashdot: Is SHA-512 the Way To Go?
If you are asking on here at that level of naivete, you are probably already compromised.
